What to do with tanned deer hides

Had to remove a bunch of personal items I've had in storage for a long time. I've got a couple of deer hides that I had professionally tanned back when I was in high school. So their over 20+ years old and the wife isn't too keen on me wall hanging them. Anyone ever make gloves out of hides or any other great ideas for me to put them to use.

Boy Scouts - Order of the Arrow. If there is an active OA "Lodge" near you, there are people who are probably looking for good quality hides to make outfits for traditional Indian ceremonies performed in OA. Your local Boy Scout Council HQ should be able to put you in touch with someone interested.

This ^

Or find a local leather shop that may take one in partial exchange for making you a pair of gloves/belt/whatever out of the other.
